On Monday, CNN spent nine minutes and 49 seconds reveling in Donald Trump Jr. being heckled by a rabid, shouting crew from the alt-right and fans of Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes during a Turning Point USA event promoting his book Triggered. Therefore, CNN have spent nine minutes and 49 seconds more on people protesting Trump Jr. than calling out ABC for their decision to spike reporting about predator Jeffrey Epstein.
Another member of the intellectual dark web has jumped into the world of tech development to circumvent censorship. Dave Rubin, host of the popular podcast and YouTube show The Rubin Report, announced on September 3 that he was launching a beta for his new tech company. In addition, it was also announced Tuesday that his show would be joining The Blaze TV.
A study from Cornell University claims YouTube channels that feature prominent conservative figures are “infecting” users with alt-right beliefs. “Auditing Radicalization Pathways on YouTube,” written by five academics, concluded that “channels in the Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) and the Alt-lite would be gateways to fringe far right ideology.” The study, released August 22, linked The Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro, Dr. Jordan Peterson, comedian and host Joe Rogan, and host Dave Rubin to fringe racist figures like Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor.
BlazeTV pundit Deneen Borelli called out Facebook’s CEO for destroying her video career via censorship. Internet personalities depend upon viewers and clicks so that their videos generate ad revenue, just like how TV shows depend viewers seeing advertisements. In her July 9 video she announced “my employment at Blaze TV depended on generating advertising revenue from my ‘Here’s the Deal’ videos distributed on Facebook.”
In the August 9 episode of TLC’s I Am Jazz, an invitation to interview Jazz and the co-author of "her" book, Jessica, is accepted by Tomi Lahren (from back when she was still with TheBlaze.) The episode’s title, “In the Line of Fire” implies a battle ensues but viewers expecting fireworks between the outspoken conservative host and the transgender teenager will be sorely disappointed.
Marisa Kabas, a reporter for Univision-owned website Fusion, devoted a series of Twitter posts on Thursday to forwarding the wild theory that Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte displayed his "white privilege" in his dubious claim that he was robbed at gunpoint while in Rio. Kabas targeted Jason Howerton of The Blaze, after he Tweeted, "Seriously, how did you did make Lochte **allegedly** being a jerk about his skin color? It's impressive." Kabas retorted, "your white privilege is what's most impressive."
Conservative actor Jon Voight is used to making waves in the media for standing in direct opposition to their radical liberal viewpoints.
Voight appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio program Monday and shared how and when he saw Hollywood drift from its traditional American values and how that influenced culture.
MSNBC attempted to discredit conservative media on Thursday when Richard Lui brought on Joy Reid, a national correspondent for the network, to eviscerate right-wing news outlets for allegedly exposing Black Lives Matter organizer Shaun King as white. The Daily Caller, Breitbart News,The Blaze, blogger Vickie Pate, and CNN’s Don Lemon have all contributed evidence which strongly suggests the activist is lying about his race.
The host of HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher covered a wide range of topics on his Friday night program, ranging from declaring that the U.S. is not morally equivalent to the Islamic State of Iran and Syria to joking about NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams “not having a good week.”
Most of the discussion about war and its consequences took place during the “Overtime” segment of the show, which airs online after the regular hour-long program has gone off the air.
This week has been a busy time for conservative icon Glenn Beck. During his Monday program, Beck admitted to his audience at TheBlaze.com that he had been suffering from a rare neurological disease for five years, but after undergoing hormone therapy, electric stimulation and other treatments -- not to mention relying on his faith in God -- the disease has been reversed, and he's on his way to an almost total recovery.
Then on Tuesday, MSNBC's Ed Schultz stated that Beck had “access and opportunity” to get the best treatment possible and declared: “I hope that his story motivates those who think that ObamaCare is bad, that maybe they will rethink” their opposition to the Affordable Care Act.
If you needed further evidence that MSNBC’s Ed Schultz lacks the maturity of someone who hosts a program on one of the major cable news networks, well here you go. The Ed Show host apparently tweeted out that the program had more Scott Walker news – presumably negative – which got the attention of The Blaze, when a reporter, Dan Andros, tweeted back at Schultz: “so shady! like that time you were bought and paid for by the Democratic party”. The tweet included a link which showed that Schultz got his slot on MSNBC through the Democratic Party.
Naturally, Schultz could not resist responding to Andros, initially tweeting (grammar is Schultz's): “work for the Blaze ? Now that’s a real job. !”. After a witty reply from Andros pointing out that Glenn Beck is listed by Forbes as one of the world’s most powerful celebrities, Schultz replied yet again, this time through a direct message, with a personal attack on Beck, in what would barely qualify as English:
Liberal comedian Whoopi Goldberg clumsily deployed the race card in an argument with conservative guest co-host Will Cain of The Blaze on Wednesday's The View about comedian Russell Brand comparing Fox News to ISIS. Cain had criticized Brand, pointing out the ludicrousness of describing a news channel he disagrees with politically to violent, predatory terrorists.
Tackling how absurd American society's obsession with a virtual right to not be offended by someone else's words, Goldberg snapped back that he had “[s]poken like a true white guy.” Goldberg insisted that people “absolutely have the right” to ask people to stop using words that make them “uncomfortable.” Cain countered that “you have to be bigger than words.” In response to Goldberg arguing that people “do have the absolute right” to tell people not to use certain words Cain replied “We’d all be out of business. Everyone’s offended all of the time!”
